Arsenal hero Sol Campbell insists Arteta needs defenders like Wolves star Coady

Arsenal legend Sol Campbell believes the club should sign Conor Coady from Wolves.

The former England center half believes that Coady could add the steel that Arsenal are missing in the heart of their backline.

Campbell, who won the Premier League and FA Cup trophies with the Gunners, does not believe their current defenders are up to scratch.

He told Ladbrokes: "There's a lot of players out there who can fit the Arsenal mould. Conor Coady is a good player; he's comfortable on the ball, he's a winner.

"He's definitely got the kind of mentality Arsenal should be looking at in new players. He's definitely someone they should look at because he's so solid, he wants to defend.

"He can pass as well, he's quick, he's strong, he's good in the air. He's a good all-rounder and he's got a bit about him.

"He's at a good club now in Wolves, but he's actually someone I'd be looking at for Arsenal this summer. He's got a great attitude as well, and I like that."
